Elegy To Time - Poem by Lorraine Margueritte Gasrel Black

Like rainbows dissolving or love's end
We mourn the parting of friends

As the Sun travels East to West
Do we wonder where or when it will rest

In the Spring a world reborn
A child's first step this Summer's morn

Autumn's passing into Winter's night
Shows a glimmer of Heaven's light

And slowly ticks the clock and chimes
As in passing beats our time.

    Rainbow dissolves with broadness of end of perception and in blooming of love. In spring we see rebirth of word. An excellent imagery is drawn with sweetness of expression....10 (Report) Reply

    dissolving rainbows,
    Autumn's passing,
    passing beats of time.......... your concentrate on passing.... liked it very much since it made me think of the triviality and at the same time of the beauty., thank u dear poetess. tony (Report) Reply

    ok, i just reread twice. i guess it is definitely 1. a poem of serious reflection and, in part, it is a lament for the dead. so, it IS an elegy. hee-hee.



    i shall start constructing June's all-female-poets showcase, using this as the first submitted poem. but unlike in the past, i shall wait a while before i make the 'first bunch' of poems available for readers of the showcase. i'll let you know when you may see it on my site.

    Thanks. bri :) (Report) Reply
